About

Hi there, my name is Deborah Carter, and Paper Doll Invitations is my baby. As my son, the last of three children, entered his teens and didn’t really require much of my attention anymore, and I was a bit lost. I had been designing my son’s birthday invitations, thank you cards and birthday cards he gave to his friends for years, and decided to take a graphic design class at the local college. That was it, I was smitten. I took every class offered relating to graphic design and several art classes as well, and ended up with an education in graphic design. At first it was just for me. But my sister convinced me to share my passion with others, and Paper Doll Invitations was born.

Paper Doll Invitations is a small boutique design studio located in Carlsbad, in sunny Southern California.

I’m absolutely passionate about what I do! Invitations, announcements and greeting cards are so personal. Since I’m a small design studio, my focus is on personal concierge service. I want you to feel pampered and special. I’m here to answer your questions and make sure your invitation, announcement or card is exactly how you want it.

You won’t find my designs on any other invitation site either. All designs are created right here at Paper Doll Invitations, so minor design adjustments are usually possible at no additional charge.

Check out my designs. If you have any questions or special requests, please don’t hesitate to call. I would love to help you have the invitation or greeting card you’re looking for. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a pre-designed invitation or card, or a custom one, I’m here to help you.
